When the days get shorter in Autumn and the sun loses the harshness of the summer rays our homes seem to be reaching out for more sun. It’s this time of the year that a Vergola’s opening and closing roof system really delivers something no other pergola or roof structure can. The immediate shift in temperature and subsequent ambiance is incredible when you open the roof louvres of a Vergola in Autumn.
While fixed roofs are excellent for keeping your home cool in summer by blocking out the sun, it means that the other nine months of the year your home loses the light and warmth of the sun delivers, just when we crave it most.
Not so with a Vergola!
The opening and closing louvres allow you to harness the light and warmth of the Autumn sun. You can even schedule the louvres to open to different degrees at different times of the day – effectively chasing the sun!! At night you can close the Vergola louvres completely to retain some of the warmth in your home, then open them up again when the sun reappears.
When you meet with your Vergola Design Consultant, they will be able to demonstrate exactly the impact an opening and closing Vergola will on your living space by positioning of the sun at different points in the sky throughout the year, essentially imitating the 4 seasons.
